General Purpose Wire Rope Products
6x7 Class Wire Rope
6×7 Wire rope is your go-to solution for heavy duty, coarse laid, construction wire. This rope is meant to withstand more resistance to wear and tear, impact, and abrasion than other wire rope options. With fewer, but sturdier chords, this wire rope option is stiff and will require large drums and sheaves. It is not ideal for bend stressors like rope with finer wire. With 6 chords, each wire will bear a more significant portion of load. Safety must always be top of mind when using load-bearing 6×7 wire.
